a fruitless search for apples

  1. this photo! I find myself seeking words in my own wilderness of rusting thoughts.

  2. beautiful rendition
    of an ugly tableau


  3. sometimes even the search is more important than the harvest…

  4. rusting tins rendering a fruitless planet…very powerful!!

  5. Wonderful haiku ~ sorta like the adage ‘ going to a hardware store looking for an ice cream cone’ ~ Happy Week to you!

    artmusedog and carol (A Creative Harbor)

  6. Perhaps a few empty cans of applesauce in the mess as well…creative take on photo and prompt!

  7. On the other hand, you can give someone an apple and they’d still be searching among old rusty tins.. For something more filling. Love the thoughts this piece provokes

      I happen to be a searcher among rusty tins—and I love apples, so there you are! 😉

  8. This reminds me of the after maths of war. Litter left…
    Some peoples took that ‘junk’ and made musical instruments.
    Others remelted the glass to make useful household items.

    In a nation of over wrought and over weight peoples… perhaps one should consider moderation.
    And also the imprisonment. Always so sad to see so much litter.

  9. the sad truth of our times…
    described beautifully 🙂
